Again I ask: what right do these right-wing assholes like Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity, O'Reilly, Beck, Savage, O'Beirne, Malkin, et al, have to judge the patriotism of ANYONE?? Who in the hell decided that they get to decide who a "real American" is?
BTW, the military's identification with the Republican Party has dropped sharply. And donations to Democrats by members of the military now account for 40% of the total of all donations.
I guess those soldiers just hate America. Just ask Rush "Anal Cyst" Limbaugh, the toughest talking draft dodger in America.

I was wrong. The Democratic Party continues to cave in to the little son of a bitch every damn time.
This Petraeus bullshit was the last fucking straw. No, we can't defund the g-d damned war, but we can pass a resolution condemning an ad, thus making the Democrats look like utter fools and cowards, and, by the way, diverting attention away from actual issues. (Ooooh, we have to condemn a newspaper ad or Limbaugh and Fox "News" will call us unpatriotic. WTF is that??)

(J. Miller: Whoo-hoo!)
I used to argue endlessly about this, citing things like porno viewing numbers and divorce and abortion statistics in the heartland which proved that the supposed "real Americans" were just as loose in their personal lives as everyone else. Many readers argued with me and said that I was projecting --- the social conservatives may be rigid and small minded, they said, but they are sincere. And when I pointed out that the brouhahas about Janet Jackson's nipple and that blond desperate housewife jumping into a black football players arms had more than a tinge of racial rather than moral outrage, I was told that I was wrong: people really were stunned at such overt sexuality on television, despite the fact that there is a ton of explicit sexuality on television that barely raises an eyebrow...
States With the Highest Divorce Rate by Political Affiliation
[By the way, liberal Commie-Hippie Massachusetts has the LOWEST divorce rate in the United States.]
Red states are also by far the worst in terms of infant mortality, receiving more money from the Federal government than they pay in taxes (that good 'ol conservative self-reliance), and any number of other indicators.
Face it: SOCIAL CONSERVATISM IS A CROCK OF HYPOCRISY AND LIES, and it has never--and will never--be anything else.

I wouldn't ask if I didn't think it was of the highest importance.

For daring to report illegal arms sales, Navy veteran Donald Vance says he was imprisoned by the American military in a security compound outside Baghdad and subjected to harsh interrogation methods.
There were times, huddled on the floor in solitary confinement with that head-banging music blaring dawn to dusk and interrogators yelling the same questions over and over, that Vance began to wish he had just kept his mouth shut.
He had thought he was doing a good and noble thing when he started telling the FBI about the guns and the land mines and the rocket-launchers - all of them being sold for cash, no receipts necessary, he said. He told a federal agent the buyers were Iraqi insurgents, American soldiers, State Department workers, and Iraqi embassy and ministry employees.
The seller, he claimed, was the Iraqi-owned company he worked for, Shield Group Security Co.
"It was a Wal-Mart for guns," he says. "It was all illegal and everyone knew it."
So Vance says he blew the whistle, supplying photos and documents and other intelligence to an FBI agent in his hometown of Chicago because he didn't know whom to trust in Iraq.
For his trouble, he says, he got 97 days in Camp Cropper, an American military prison outside Baghdad that once held Saddam Hussein, and he was classified a security detainee.
Almost $9 BILLION in reconstruction funds unaccounted for? Don't ask if you know what's good for you. More than 190,000 weapons simply vanished into the hands of our enemies? Keep your mouth shut. For above all, the right wing criminals who run our government follow the code of silence unto death, and no one can violate it.
Really, it's as if our government were being run by the Mafia.
